fabman Posted September 15, 2007 Report Share Posted September 15, 2007 That's not right, Tim. Warner Bros. picked the director for 'I Am Legend.' Will Smith joined later as producer with his Overbrook Entertainment, when he got the offer to play Neville. What do you mean, this project has been in the works @ Warner Bros for years.. Will joined the project a few years ago about 2004..he was going to do it with Michael Bay.. then he went for Francis Lawrence.. I know this project is in the works at Warners for years, Ridley Scott was doing it with Arnold Schwarzenegger starring as Neville in the late 90's. And I know that Will was going to star as Neville with Michael Bay helming, BUT, Will had never inked a deal. And by the time he got the offer to play the lead again, Francis Lawrence was already at the helm. He joined as producer with Overbrook later, when he was on board to play Richard Neville.
